Big Ten Schools Collaborate to Offer a MBA in Agriculture Management
Purdue and Indiana universities may be rivals on the gridiron, but they’re collaborating in the classroom. In August, these universities will offer a MS-MBA in Food and Agribusiness Management. Here, 30 students will participate in the only MBA program that focuses exclusively on agribusiness. During this 27-month program, students will study how MBA concepts like marketing and finance can be applied to the agriculture industry. 85% of the coursework will be provided online, though students will serve week-long residencies at Indiana, Purdue, and internationally.
